I made this the night before my husband's birthday. It turned out perfectly! Despite everyone being stuffed after dinner, no one left even a smear of this on their plates. I used the spring-form-crust as a guide as I don't have a spring form and didn't have cookies (I used granola and dropped the salt from the crust recipe).
I doubled the recipe for the 10" pie dish I had. I had unsweetened baking chocolate (I don't think it was 99). My only difficulty was using unrefined coconut oil because it solidified when it made contact with the tofu. I had to scrape the sides of the food processor several times. Otherwise an easy recipe that tastes like a pro whipped it up.
I have been experimenting immensely on vegan mouses.
This is by far the BEST recipe.
For a fourth of july treat, I put the mouse a top a graham cracker pie crust for a nice, chocolate pie.

Delicious - Gluten free!
I just made this for my birthday and it was delicious!
I didn't use any margarine and it didn't seem to make any difference. I used Ghiradelli 100% unsweetened chocolate for the baking bar and Hershey's for the cocoa powder.
My friend who said she doesn't like chocolate flavored things found it delicious, and I can't stop reaching in the fridge for the leftovers.
Highly recommend for a delicious gluten free and vegan treat, thanks Mattie!
I used strawberries instead of raspberries, it was yummy. I also put it in the freezer for extra firmness, which I found better for cutting. Served it to my in-laws, great cooks and good test subjects for true success, they enjoyed it.
Thank you so much for this great recipe. It's so easy to make and so delicious to eat. This will be a repeat in my household. Thanks.
Flourless chocolate raspberry cake!
MMMMMMMM,...I made this lovely cake yesterday evening & it was divine! WAW!!!! I am just learning to cook, bake & use tofu.
Your recipe rocks!!
many greets from a foodie fan from Belgium! :)
Dear God help me!
Mattie you mad crazy scientist, I just made this....now I am hooked up to it's liquid form intravenously...I thought we were going to be more like Bill, eat salads, fruit, boiled potatoes...I know, I know, fresh raspberries...but coated in lush chocolate, thick gooey, silky, wickedness.... can't write...overdosing on chocolatey...nes......s....
i'm planning on making this as one of many birthday dessert treats for my husband, but i have two questions:
1. would frozen raspberries be ok to use, in your opinion?
2. would 85% chocolate suffice?
A Heavenly Celebration Dessert
I made this cake for my friends 40th celebration cake. It was divine. Everyone enjoyed every moutnful and there was even some licking of plates...lol.
I doubled the recipe and used a 10" tin as I knew my chocolate loving friends would need more than a 7" cake. And it worked really well.
Everyone should try this recipe...it's easy to make, good to look at and even better to eat. Divine.
Thank you Mattie...I have posted and reviewed it on my blog today
Was I supposed to use cocoa powder that is used to make hot chocolate? I'm just a little confused, because my cake came out verrrry bitter. I used all the right ingredients, so I'm not sure if something went wrong, or if its supposed to be so bitter. It tastes like there was almost no sugar added at all! (even though I added the right amount of sugar)
I made this yesterday for my anniversary and oooo boy is it good!!! Really rich and gourmet. It's a bit expensive to make considering I didn't have coconut oil on hand and I don't usually use tofu (everr...) but it was far less expensive than eating dessert out. Perfect for any special occasion and will impress even the most cynical anti-vegans.
The best thing I've ever eaten
You are incredible. This is the best thing in the whole entire world. Nobody that I've shared this with can understand how something so amazing can also be vegan. Even the anti-vegan, super cynical chef that I work with was impressed. Every one of your recipes that I've used has been amazing! Thank you so much for being so great
Oh wow! I was stunned! I didn't think a vegan cake could actually be good. But I was very wrong! My friend (who is a vegan) had her grandmother pass away this weekend so I decided to make her a cake because I just love cooking and she loved it so I tried it. Wow!
Made this a week back and it turned out to be stunning. Easy to make and tastes delicious. Highly recommended.
